Overpriced, awful food, warm drinks with no ice. Had to ask for ice and was eventually brought a glass with 2 cubes of ice each for our warm drinks. Now we were quite late and very hungry arriving at the restaurant and had just missed the 'all you can eat buffet' so we didn't mind choosing from the menu. The... More

Food was good and service was provided efficiently with a smile nearly till the end. Then suddenly, during the last 5 minutes an extremely rude manager intervened. He rushed us to finish our dinner because they had people waiting outside to be seated. One would think that when you are booked for dinner, you are booked for the whole evening.... More

We were walking about in Sliema looking for someplace to eat. China Village / Bombay Palace had a special on for lunch and we decided to try it out. The table we were seated at were dirty. The cutlery was dirty. The food was dished up in metal plates that you might find in the army. The samoosas was tasty,... More

I always thought that Chinese and Indian cuisines are the best choices in restaurant selection. Whenever I ate any dish from these cuisines, even chosen blindfolded, they always tasted good. Until the day I've found Bombay Palace! My wife was sick at hotel room so I decided to take a take-away. Bombay Palace was not far away, and they served... More

I had never heard of this restaurant before and in all honesty it was a spontaneous visit. We were walking along the sliema front debating over Chinese and Indian when we spotted this quaint restaurant. We were greeted by a young waiter who escorted us to a table. My father ordered a glass of wine, sweet and sour shrimp and... More

I have actually just left the restaurant and am fuming! Initially the restaurant seemed nice enough and we took our seats. We checked out the menu and ordered - the naan bread I wanted they did not have and he gave me a choice of plain or garlic - so I chose garlic. About half an hour later 1 breakfast... More

The interior is old and without an eye for details. A little bit of red paint on the walls and a few pictures should get you in the mood - impossible! The food was ok. The waiter actually asked if I preferred a stronger, more spicy dish. But after serving the main dish, he totally lost interest in any service... More
